May 2020 Concert – Song Choices

It will soon be time to think about the Summer Concert so that music can be ordered and ready to use in January!!  As the concert is just after VE day the committee thought that we could celebrate the occasion by titling the concert ‘The Best of British’. This covers all genres of music from this and other eras and also celebrates British composers and iconic songs.

Please give a thought to this as we will be asking for your suggestions for pieces of music soon!

Change of Rehearsal Venue November 5th

Please note that for one session only we will be rehearsing on 5th at St Oswald’s Church Hall as the Assembly Hall at KSCS is pre-booked.

Please think about what you would like to perform at the concert on Nov 30th, a working title to guide you is ‘Christmas past, present and future’ This spreads the choice over lots of music genres to include popular, classic, choral etc.

Any suggestions to go in the Suggestion Box.  Robin will check to make sure these are suitable for us and the most popular choices will be voted on at the last meeting on 23rd July or by email if you can’t be there. This allows music to be bought over the August break so we can start rehearsing in September.

Helping Peterborough’s Homeless

A message from Peterborough Homeless Helpers (via Fiona, Sops):

Peterborough Homeless Helpers would like to thank everyone who has kindly donated to us – clothes, rucksacks, toiletries and other items, food, storage space and time.

We support the homeless and those in need. Already this year we’ve served over 500 meals and more than 700 hot drinks. We’ve provided crisis care for two rough sleepers and assisted others with hospital, doctor and dental appointments. We’ve signposted people to official routes for obtaining help (PCC etc) and transported people to the Soup Kitchen for food they were otherwise too infirm to reach. Together we have successfully transitioned two long term rough sleepers off the streets, supported with job interviews and even helped rehome much-loved pets. One poor gentleman had fallen foul of a fraudster and came to us for help. Then there are the lucky few who are offered accommodation – they come to us for help and support too, as this is another huge challenge for some, albeit a more positive one.

We aren’t a charity, don’t have full time volunteers, paid staff or a premises to work from – we’re just a bunch of people who care passionately about helping those in desperate circumstances.

We work alongside and in partnership with organisations with the same goals. We don’t judge. We smile and welcome people – offering friendship and support. We remember they are all someone’s brother, sister, son or daughter.

We wanted to say thank you – because it’s all of you that make so much of it possible.
